Bad Dog, Marley!


Grogan, John. 2007. Bad Dog, Marley! Illustrated by Richard Cowdrey. HarperCollins.

A cute story about a dog, adorable though he may be, who finds himself in trouble. Again. And again. And again. Can this "bad dog" learn to be a good dog? Can Marley prove to his family that he's worth having around? Read and see in John Grogan's Bad Dog, Marley!

That puppy ate and he ate and he ate. He ate what was in his dish. He ate what wasn't.
He drank and he drank and he drank. He drank what was in his bowl. He drank what wasn't.
The more he ate and the more he drank, the more he pooped and the more he peed.
And the more he grew and grew and grew.
And the bigger Marley got, the bigger trouble he got into. Big, big, bad-boy trouble.

I liked this one.
